The Oliver and District Museum is housed in the old BC Provincial Police building, a heritage location that was built in the 1920s.
Our current feature exhibit is Collections Conundrums, which focuses on the issues small town history museums face surrounding their artifact collections. Enter our Conservation Station, put on a pair of white gloves, and help us process our artifacts - some of the steps include cleaning, identifying, and photographing.
